Another Survey Finds Majority OK With Robot Sex

Another survey has been published on attitudes towards sex with robots, again finding that the majority appear to think it is broadly acceptable, while again showing something of a sharp divide between male and female respondents. A study by the University of Helsinki asked people to describe their moral attitude to a sci-fi scenario in… Read more »

Anti-Sex Robot Activists Demand Regulation of Sexbot Brothels

After the announcement that a Canadian sex doll company owner plans to introduce up to ten ‘sexbot brothels’ in the USA, activists there have stepped up demands for regulation. Like certain similar institutions that have sprung up in Europe recently, Yuval Gavriel intends to skirt around existing prostitution laws to open his ‘sex doll for… Read more »

Economist Claims Sex Robots Will Improve Marriage

A female economist has published a surprisingly positive, if offbeat prediction concerning the effects of sex robots on society, and in particular marriage. MGTOWs (Men Go Their Own Way) hail the advent of sex robots as freeing men from the need to marry to have regular sex. Feminists seem to fear sexbots for that very… Read more »

Samantha the Sex Robot Can Say No

Sex robot inventor Sergi Santos has reportedly equipped his sex robot Samantha with the ability to say no if she is disinterested or ‘disturbed’ by the sexual behaviour of her partner. Well, perhaps not quite say no, but rather switch off into ‘dummy mode’ whenever she detects aggressive behaviour on the part of her owner… Read more »

‘Experts’ Claim No Health Benefits of Sex Robots

Seems as though the information war against sex robots has begun in earnest. Two British doctors (why do the British so afraid of sexbots?) published a ‘study’ in an important medical journal, and which media headlines have claimed proves that sex robots are dangerous. However, the ‘study’ appears to be more their own ruminations and… Read more »

Slavoj Zizek on sexbots and rights

Slavoj Zizek is a Slovenian cultural critic who has been described as ‘the most dangerous philosopher in the West’. Last week he penned a lengthy op-ed for Russia Today asking – ‘Do sexbots have rights?’. His piece is in response to the recent and very controversial proposal of the European Union to grant robots ‘personhood… Read more »

Autoblow Creator Brian Sloan Talks About Sex Robots & Other Toys

Brian Sloan is the enterpaneur behind the Autoblow ‘blowjob machine’ for men. He certainly saw a gap in the sex toy market for men and exploited it through a kickstarter campaign and some shrewd marketing efforts. In an interview published online today, he gave some very interesting thoughts on male masturbation, the stigma surrounding male… Read more »

Was Sex Robot Samanatha Really Molested? Creator Speaks

You may remember that Samantha the sex robot (and rival to Harmony of Realbotix) was allegedly molested and abused so much she needed repairs after being showcased at an Austrian tech show last year. http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/article/610ec648-b348-423a-bd3c-04dc701b2985 Given the inevitable opposition to sex robots that is already evident and will grow mainfold in the years ahead, I… Read more »

Hamony The Sex Robot Can Change Faces

Matt McMullen showed off his sex robot Harmony at the CES earlier this month, and had a surprise up his sleeve – the robot’s face is ‘modular’ meaning it can be quite easily altered simply by pulling something out and putting something else back in. It’s a great idea of course. Harmony is expected to… Read more »

Five Best MGTOW YouTube Channels

MGTOW (‘Men Going There Own Way’) is a controversial and growing men’s movement whose central philosophy is that, in today’s world at least, men will be happier if they forego the pursuit of women and live their lives without the need for the opposite sex. The exact definition of and criteria for living an authentic… Read more »

Virtual Girlfriends – MGTOW (Sandman)

Another interesting video from the top MGTOW (men go their own way) on YouTube – Sandman. In this video, he talks about virtual girlfriends, again referring to an idea I’ve made here, that the most popular form of sex dolls/sex robots will soon be ‘AR sex dolls’. These will be rather generic sex dolls (or… Read more »

Talking to Women in the Street to be Made Ilegal in UK

Just in time for the arrival of sex robots, the UK looks set to make it a crime to talk to women in the street, wolf-whistle or wink at attractive women, or take photographs of women in public without consent. This follows a ‘successful’ trial of the policy in the county of Nottinghamshire. Nottinghamshire Police… Read more »

‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’ Review

‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’ screened last night on UK terrestrial ‘channel 4’ and I have to say, it was on the whole rather good. Most of it was balanced and the entire documentary focused mainly on a sympathetic profile of a somewhat elderly doll lover called James, interspersed with illuminating ‘behind the scenes’ insights… Read more »

British TV Trailer for ‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’

A documentary entitled ‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’ is to be aired on the British Channel 4 on Thursday November 30th. Judging from the trailer, it does give prominence to anti-sexbot campaigner Kathleen Richardson who is on a virtual one woman mission to save humanity, or at least women, from the coming of the sexbots.

Rise of the Digisexuals?

Another new word to add to the future sex tech lexicon – ‘digisexual’. It seems to have been coined by some academic ‘ethics experts’ at a Canadian university and refers to what they see as the inevitable rise of a new sexual class who will obtain sexual satisfaction predominantly in the virtual world (which apparently… Read more »

Emma the AI Sex Robot in Action

Sadly, not that type of action, but this video does show off some impressive AI capabilities. Unlike most talking robot YouTube videos, the conversation appears relatively unscripted. Sexbots like these might still be relatively crude in their functionality, but when you consider that appearance wise and limb flexibility they are at the level of luxury… Read more »
